A one year postdoctoral position is available immediately in Dr Patrick Case and Professor Jeremy Henley’s laboratories. The project is to examine signalling from the placenta to the fetal brain. This novel concept of cellular signalling from cell barriers like the placenta and the cornea was recently discovered by our research group (Nature Nanotechnology;4:876-83 (2009). Nature Nanotechnology 6, 824–833 (2011). This project aims to move this onto real-life applications towards the clinic. You will liaise with Professor Marianne Thoresen (Clinical Neuroscience Bristol), Dr Nicki Cohen (Neuropathology Bristol) and Professor Elek Molnar (Bristol).
The overall objectives of the project are to characterise changes in neuronal development with immunocytochemistry and to do this in dissociated cell culture as well as in slice preparations of brains. You should hold a PhD in a relevant neuroscience or biological discipline.
If successful, you may be appointed either on a fixed-term or an open-ended contract depending on the extent of your previous relevant research experience. Three years’ appropriate and relevant experience at another higher education institution would normally lead to an appointment on an open-ended contract.
